On Wednesday, over 200 years after the Battle of Trafalgar, the British Royal Navy and the French Navy traded shots again.

The two navies met in the south of France for a rugby match and things eventually got pretty ugly. 

With France leading 13–6, a huge brawl broke out. Punches were thrown, tackles were made, even a couple of substitutes entered the fray.

Amazingly, the fracas only resulted in two red cards and a yellow.

Don’t worry, everyone eventually put their differences aside. 

“They all went for a drink afterwards and there were no hard feelings,” a naval source told the Telegraph.
